Following Rye and Bond Street Social, another new bar is coming to Fells Point.
To be called Frederick's on Fleet Street, the bar replaces Tyson's Tavern, which closed last year. The general manager and part-owner is Jim Saufley, a longtime bartender and part-time boxing coach.
The anticipated opening date is April 1.
Like Rye, Frederick's will focus on craft cocktails - originals by Saufley and his own take on vintage cocktails. Saufley has been a corporate bartender, for Marriott hotels, for 18 years and is a member of the new Baltimore Bartenders' Guild.
He and his business partner, Eric Butterfield, have been renovating the small bar - it holds about 100 people - since last October, when they bought the business. The liquor license was transferred in early February.
